Temple Mount Not Negotiable

We’ll see if this is true.

Israel’s sovereignty over the Temple Mount is not up for discussion, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Wednesday, a day after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem was key to an agreement with Israel.

What occurred in Annapolis and Washington over the last two days had no bearing on the situation on the Temple Mount, Olmert said.

Olmert’s comments came at a press briefing with reporters following his final meeting with George W. Bush in the White House, and just hours before returning to Israel.

Olmert’s meeting with Bush, his third in just over 48 hours, was believed to have dealt with the Iranian nuclear situation. The prime minister said that the activities to halt Iran’s nuclear program needed to continue at full force. He would not elaborate beyond that, saying only – when asked about his discussion on Iran with Bush – that he always finds his meeting with the president “captivating.”
